A lingerie firm has highlighted and catered to the fact that all women’s bodies are unique, by identifying seven different types of breasts according to the Independent paper.
In a research, Bras are generally fitted according to the width of the woman’s chest and how far her breasts protrude, but the size guide on the Third Love website also takes into account that the breast has other characteristics, such as length and fullness.
The seven types according to the Independent includes the “Round” breast, which is equally full at the top and bottom and the “East West” where nipples face outwards.
“Side Set” describes breasts with a wide space in-between while breasts that are different sizes are called “Asymmetric”.
The dictionary also includes the “Bell Shape”, or breasts which are slim at the top and full at the bottom, “Slender”, where the breast are thin and the nipples point downwards and the “Tear Drop” which are round at the bottom, but less full at the top.”
According to Ra’el Cohen, Vice President of design and product development at Third Love, during their product design process, they discovered that getting a great fit was about identifying the style that best suits your natural shape.
So ladies the next time you visit or plan on visiting a lingerie shop for that bra to fit you perfectly know your breast type to get the best to fit your type.
